FA Cup Semi-Final Sunday 23rd April 2023: Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United

Although Manchester United are (at the time of writing) 3rd place in the table and Brighton & Hove Albion’s 8th, the bookies favour The Seagulls to win the second of this weekend’s FA Cup Semi Finals. 

As favourites, Brighton are signified by Mercury (ruler of the 1st and 10th houses), whilst Jupiter (7th and 4th house ruler) represents their opponents Manchester United. Mercury is retrograde (not a problem in contest charts) but is also under the sunbeams (within 17 degrees of the Sun and in the same sign) signalling a minor setback for the favourites.    

In this chart, cast for the date and time of kickoff, there are few testimonies of note: A trine from the Moon to the antiscion of the Part of Fortune at 22 Aquarius 02 is the most significant.  

The Moon also applies to conjunct the cusp of the 10th house (victory for the favourites).  

Both these testimonies favour the favourites, but the orb of aspect in each case is greater than the 5-degrees considered most effective in 90-minute football matches: The most likely outcome is a win for the favourites, with the latter stages of the game deciding the result, and extra time a strong possibility. 

If the bookies are correct and Brighton truly are the favourites, they should have cause to celebrate this Sunday.
